arabia? >> well, the obvious is 9/11 for america. 15 of the 19 hijackers are saudis. i tried to explain in my book how it was basically a saudi quarrel fought out on american soil with american victims. al qaeda, bin laden dedicated to bringing down the house of saad couldn't do it in saudi arabia with the near enemy as they called him so they came to america and attacked the far enemy. you paid the price for your years of friendship and closeness with saudi arabia. tavis: i was about to ask why did we end up being at the top of that list. you explain it now. you talk about it in the book, the price that we had to pay for our friendship with the saudis. >> well, it's america who exploited, discovered and developed saudi oil. back in the 1930's, the saudis chose america rather than the british, rather than us because we had been meddling in the middle east. the king of saudi arabia at the time liked the idea that america were far away. they would come and develop the oil and go away. america is on the other side of the world. after the war, the second world war, suddenly, saudi arabia di

occupation of cuba territory. most of latin america history have some knowledge of castro's hostility towards the base. but what is generally not known is that from the early 1900s to the present, guantanamo has also been a sight for diplomatic accommodation, compromise, and cooperation. the terms dictated by the platt amendment only stated that the united states would buy or lease naval or station, buy or lease them. in cuba. it did not specify a number of such stations, nor their locations. that was a matter of negotiated compromise between the cuban president and theodore rooseve roosevelt, that the united states would obtain really only one major naval station and that would be guantanamo, not havana. now, obviously, the united states has always had the upper hand in these negotiations. when i say diplomatic compromise, i'm not suggesting that the two parties started on a level playing field. that certainly would not be the case. the second major compromise occurred in 1934 when the united states abrogated the platt amendment, which had become an increasingly unpopular with the various se

>> glenn: welcome to a special edition of the glenn beck program. the story of america is one of self-reliance and optimism, and profound faith. not only in the context of religious freedom, but also in the unprecedented faith in the ability of human beings to control their own destiny. while the spirit of personal responsibility was strong with our founders, great patriots like thomas payne, he argued for redistribution of wealth off the bat. and alexander hamilton wanted a central bank. they wound up losing those battles but plenty kept can on fighting. the constitution kept those dogs at bay for better part of 200 years. eventually those seeking a different path than the ones the founders settled on realized the only way to really defeat the constitution was for the people to stop reading it. progressives realized victory required changing history. to defeat them, we have to correct that. progressives know how powerful history is. when these truths get told and the lies get corrected, the game is going to be on. it's pulling the mask off the monster. next week, we'll dive d

in the white house just focused on manufacturing, because it is my view that america's got to make things. [applause] not all the manufacturing jobs that have gone are going to come back. and if people tell you they are, that's just not true -- because a lot of that has moved to places where the wages are just much lower. and i know that some people say, well, then we should just set up tariffs so that folks can't ship them in. but these days the economy, the global economy is so interconnected that that's just not a practical solution. the solution is to find -- and i don't know the details of the steel mill here -- but i know that the ones that have been successful, they do what emc is doing as well, which is you find what's the high- end market. what's the market that involves a lot of technology, specialization, highly trained workers, quick turnarounds to spec so that the customers really feel like they're getting something special and different -- that's how you compete, so finding ways to develop specialty steels and so forth, that's going to be the key. our manufacturing office wi
